>> ♪ >> "action news." delaware valley's leading news program. with matt o'donnell, tamala edwards, karen rogers and meteorologist, david murphy. >> ♪ >> good morning. it's 5 o'clock on this tuesday september 27th. here it's what's happening. >> i think donald just criticized me for preparing for this debater and yes, i did. >> hillary has experience but it's bad experience. >> fight night. hillary clinton and donald trump faced off in the first presidential debater and they were ready to rumble. who took the night? we're live with reaction. >> and accuweather is tracking wet weather that could slow down your morning commutes. >> let's off and on out more about that. dave murphy has accuweather and karen rogers is ready with your traffic. good morning. >> just setting up the radar. as we take a look we have that band rain that is shifting almost past philadelphia in close in on the city you are seeing a little bit of this left over but it's light rain. remember that the heavier rain
came through earlier though and your roads are going to be wet for a little while even after the active precipitation is finished. speaking of active precipitation it is fairly steady with yellows and oranges showing up on the radar not too far away from the jersey turnpike and this is also cut now into the northern portion of route 55 and the a.c. expressway. there's also a second batch that's pushing off the cost but a few lighter sprinkles down along the shore and of course you'll get some of this addition in ally stuff coming through. during rush hour though we expect that to get out of here. as we go later into the morning and afternoon from west to east we're expecting the return of some sunshine. down the shore you might be waiting awhile for that and there might be lingering showers a little longer at the shore. 67 degrees in philadelphia currently, 61 in allentown, 66 in wilmington, 69 in millville and 70 degrees currently in cape may. as we roll through the day, we are going to dry out and get milder. a high of 75 is expect this afternoon probably late in the day around 4 o'clock. but basically in the mid 70's all the way up until about 6 o'clock and again look at how that sunshine continues to
burst back as we go through the day. karen, unfortunately unsettled weather is on the way later in the seven-day forecast and it might hang around awhile. details coming up. >> all right day. as you were talking i was watching the penndot crews right here picking up the cones and they just cleared the scene. this is the schuylkill eastbound, the off ramp from the vine eastbound and looks like they just cleared that through. i saw some cars starting to move right now on that ramp and that construction on the vine wrapping up so things are looking a lot better right now if you're about to head out there. it is wet, though. so the roads are wet. you want the slow it down. this is i-95 approaching cottman avenue. that's your southbound traffic. you can see howett it is on 95 at this point so coming in from langhorne or bensalem give yourself a few extra minutes to travel on the wet roads but i've got to say every day we've been seeing accidents. the one day we have bad weather and we expect accidents we're not seeing any so that's some good news. looking at the ben franklin bridge coming westbound or eastbound no problems. just wet out there. let's hop into new jersey. this is what it looks like on 42. that's your northbound traffic coming up from deptford or turnersville.
a little slow traveling through the rain but not moving too badly just yet. matt and tam. >> all right, thank you karen. well, we begin with the showdown of the political season, hillary clinton and donald trump showed up battle ready for their first head to head debate. >> the gloves were off as both candidates went on the attack. >> secretary clinton tried to hammer home the idea that trump cannot back up a lot of his policies and promises and he's not prepared to be commander-in-chief. trump painted clinton as a politician that had decades in power. a lot of jabs were personal. both candidates butted heads over race relations and law enforcement. >> everyone should be respected by the law and everyone should respect the law. right now that's not the case in a lot of our neighborhoods. >> now whether or not in a place like chicago you do stop and frisk which worked very well but you take the gun away from criminals that shouldn't be having it. >> clinton and trump will meet
for two more debates the next one is at a town hall format in saint louis on sunday october 9th. >> people on social media followed the presidential debate very closely with opinions from all sides of the political spectrum. twitter reported overnight that the trump-clinton matchup was the most tweeted debate ever which is not much of a surprise. twitter is only 10 years old. television ratings for the debate will be released later today. "action news" reporter annie mccormick is live at penn's landing with reaction to last night's showdown. annie. >> reporter: matt and tam, this is just the first out of three debates and going into the debate, one out of five people said it could actually change their mind about voting. donald trump and hillary clinton facing off the for the firm an estimated 100 million viewers tuned in to last night's debate. >> i will release my tax returns against my lawyer's wishes when she releases her 33,000 e-mails that have been deleted. >> i made a mistake using a private e-mail.
>> that's for sure. >> and if i had to do it over again, i would obviously do it differently. >> reporter: national security jobs and taxs were some of the issues discussed. along with some personal jabs. >> my tax cut is the biggest since ronald reagan. >> your plans would add $5 trillion to the debt. i think donald just criticized me for preparing for this debate. and yes, i did. and you know what else i prepared for? i prepared to be president. >> i agree. she's got experience. but it's bad experience and this country can't afford have another four years of that kind of experience. >> reporter: some voters at a watch party at mcgillan's old ale house in center city last night had mixed reviews. >> hillary is really great. i think donald -- i think hillary is doing good. >> reporter: there were multiple watch parties across the area. that's because many people
said they were treating this event like the super bowl. for now reporting live in penn's landing, annie mccormick, channel6 "action news." matt, back to you. >> thank you annie. we brought you the debater live on 6abc and 6abc.com and if you missed it, head to our web site to watch the entire broadcast. we also have ongoing analysis and an abc news fact check on claims made by both candidates. >> it is now 5:06. and happening today, a key government witness will continue to testify today in the trial surrounding the bridgegate scandal. david wildstein worked for the port authority and pleaded guilty last year to causing traffic gridlock near the george washington bridge in 2013. yesterday he testified that governor chris christie's former campaign manager was aware of the lane closures and that the motive was alleged to punish the mayor of fort lee for not endorsing christa. a delaware judge is holding a conference with attorneys in the case of three teens charged after a high school bathroom fight that left a 16-year-old girl dead. today's conference comes after the judge ruled that a 16-year-old girl facing the most serious charge will not be tried as an adult.
the girls are accused of repeatedly hitting amy joyner-francis during an at hack tatter at howard high school of technology. an autopsy found joyner-francis died of sudden cardiac death. >> we're hearing from the parents of a woman whose throat was slashed in delaware county for the first time. natasha gibson was found murdered thursday morning outside her friend's house in the 600 block of bailey road in yeadon. investigators are focusing on this man seen on surveillance video at 59th and catherine streets in philadelphia at a store there. police say the killer likely cut himself. they found a trail of blood from the crime scene to that store 2 miles away. >> i haven't even begun to taper down sad. i'll still on revenge. >> i want justice. >> i'm still on revengeful angry. >> all i want is the murderer found. we need justice. i can't sit here and ask someone to turn themself in because i know that's not going the happen. >> police are hoping someone recognizes this man. >> developing right now,
residents of cedar rapids iowa are bracing for their second largest flood in city history. people are hoping that a temporary flood wall will hold as the rain swollen cedar river crests threatening thousands of homes. the river is already in major flood stage rising past 20 feet. it's expected to crest today at 23 feet. >> while we watch there story, we're tracking rain here in our area. >> we are. a little bit of a nuisance for the morning commute. storm tracker6 live double scan right now shows that you there are two bands of rain, the first pretty much moving off the coast of south jersey at this point with just some trailing light sprinkles. the second with some steadier rain and that is pushing through the i-95 corridor and starting to get over towards south jersey. i'll take closer look at all of that in a second. let's get you outside and we have sky6 and it still looks rather dank and a little dreary he in center city this morning as the clouds are low and we still have some of that light rain falling. that's from our temple university camera on north broad street looking south to city hall. a closer view on radar shows you the steadier stuff is now
in south jersey and this is generally moving from southwest to northeast and at the same time slowly shifting over toward the east. it doesn't look like it's going to be too much longer before we're out from under the raindrops in philadelphia. there might be some spray coming up off the roads but the roads are going to remain wet into a good portion of the rush hour and even more so down in these areas of south jersey including medford lakes glassboro and places like woodbury where you're still looking at that steadier rain coming through. obviously if you're out in media delaware county a little bit of a sprinkle coming through over the last five, 10 minute but generally speaking um proving conditions there and then a little farther out why'd you see he those lingering sprinkles and showers down by the shore. of course at the shore you still later this morning have to deal with more of these showers coming through and in a moment i'll show you future tracker6's latest take on how long that's going the take. 67 degrees is your current temperature in philadelphia, 66 in wilmington, 61 a little cooler up in allentown and 70 in cape may. future tracker6 picking up the rain story and it does look like by about 9 o'clock most
of this is pushing over toward the shore. i could see some lingering shower activity by the shore, perhaps past 9 o'clock but it does look like generally you're getting closer and as we go through the rest of the afternoon the clouds should clear out and we should wind up with more sunshine moving in and maybe even a lot of sunshine in some cases. clouds to sun up in the lehigh valley. breezy conditions. 74 degrees. that's one of the first places where you're going to see the return of sun. at the shore you'll probably wait a little longer for that to happen but at some point later today we do expect mostly cloudy skies and showers to give way to some sunshine. 74 degrees is the high down the shore. and today in philadelphia clouds to sun, rain early, drying up pretty quickly over the next hour to two and breezy conditions, 75 degrees with that sun coming back. overnight tonight a few clouds but a lot of stars, too. cool conditions getting down to 59 degrees in philadelphia with very light winds. and then tomorrow we've got maybe a sprinkle or shower down the shore in the morning but later in the afternoon or evening look for some sprinkles and then eventually some steadier rain building
back in. this is 11 o'clock tomorrow night and thursday also looks like it could be rather wet. it's all because of a cutoff upper level low pressure system that's going to be migrating on wednesday out of chicago. and then just settling over the midatlantic region over the next several days. your exclusive accuweather 7-day forecast today's high is 75 degrees. we've got clouds to sun. that rain ending fairly quickly this morning. and then sun to clouds on wednesday, 75 with more rain arriving either in the afternoon or more likely at night. and then thursday cloudy with occasional periods of rain and if that low is close enough to us we could actually see a pretty good downpour and perhaps a couple of inches of rain from wednesday night in through thursday, 69 is the high there. then on friday we get into just a damp pattern. it's not as bad friday, saturday and sunday. mostly cloudy skies the first couple of those days, friday and saturday. more of a partly sunny sky cover on sunday. each day could feature a sprinkle or shower but i don't think we're looking at washouts friday through sunday. >> okay, thank you david. it is now 5:11. all new on "action news" one

>> you know what's funny every morning we have been starting with major problems even though the road is dry. today it's wet and we have no accidents. i cannot explain this. let's take a look right now at storm track circumstance, actually we'll take a look in new jersey here at the traffic. this is route 42 at route 41. when we watch the cars go back we're seeing the spray jump on the camera, the windshield of the camera lined them so you need to be careful as you're headed out but we're not seeing too many issues with the rain. the walnut lane bridge scheduled to reopen today. it's been closed since last april. it's been awhile. so that's better news if you're heading out. let's see what it looks like on the ben franklin bridge. people moving okay. we've got light volume starting you off but you are traveling with these wet roads. you'll want to give yourself a little extra time to do that. storm tracker6 live double scan showing the rain is currently in the process of moving out of the city. it's slowly pushing up to the north and east so this line is shifting just a little bit as we do so if you're in the
western suburbs, the rain is done. in philadelphia nearly done. but it's still raining pretty good right now on route 70 in cherry hill, in medford lakes, on route 30, the white horse pike near berlin. you see the areas of yellow right near route 55 and 322 near rowan university, route 40, route 49 near salem, those areas of yellow showing that rain really coming down so travel and especially safely in those areas, tam. >> okay, thank you, karen. a man lost at sea for eight days will be reunited with his family today in boston. a ship discovered 22-year-old nathan carman floating on a life raft 100 miles off of martha's vineyard. nathan's mother linda is still missing. u.s. coast guard announced it will not reopen the search for her. the carmans ran into trouble after leaving rhode island in their 32-foot fishing boat last week. coast guard officials say they'll interview nathan about what happened. >> security will be tight for a second straight day at a federal courthouse in charleston south carolina. jury selection continues today

good morning. >> good morning. a little bit of a busy morning in the weather department. we have some showers that are now pushing away from philadelphia but still put something fairly steady downpours down in parts of gloucester camden and burlington counties and down into cumberland county. salem county appears to be down to just a few sprinkles as is philadelphia. then there's additional shower activity and steadier showers coming out of areas south of baltimore through the eastern shore of maryland through dover delaware and on their way over to the shore. the shore you also have wet roads because of this initial shower activity that came through t it looks like the last of this is probably very close to the coast by about nine or 10 o'clock this morning and then we'll be looking at some brightening skies and hopefully the return of a decent amount of sunshine later today. there's satellite indicating that about halfway across pennsylvania we are seeing the clouds break up. so that pattern moves from west to east today. temperatures this morning not too bad. 67 degrees in philadelphia. low 60's in allentown and reading. nothing like what we had yesterday. 65 in trenton. 68 in dover and 70 in cape may. and as we roll through the
